Control cables

Control cables

AKAPP has a wide range of high flexible cables, especially developped for controlling. Applicable for fixed or moving applications, such as drag chains and festoon systems.

Therefore, we recommend to use our series ÖPVC with PVC outer sheath, for all applications where control cables are required. It is advisable to ask our sales department for more information about these cables, in particular for moving applications.
